Rhiannon Leigh Wryn,
There is a scene where Helvetica proceeds to eat food and drink with her feet this is probably a reference to Quentin Tarantino (a long-time friend of Robert Rodriguez) who is known to have a foot 'fetish' and frequently uses close-ups of feet in his films. See more »

You could do worse than to take your kids to see this film.
I'm rating this on the same level I rated "The Final Destination" and "GI JOE."
"The Final Destination" was a silly gimmicky horror film. "GI JOE" was a silly generic action film. "Shorts" is just a silly generic kids film, and when I say it's a kids film, I mean it's a KIDS film.
Children will either like it or they won't. It's got a lot of stuff in it that will probably keep an undiscerning 5-10 year old entertained for an hour and a half. However, anyone over a certain age will just go... "Hey, that's kind of ridiculous..."
The acting ranges from good to bad. The special effects are mostly obvious CG effects. The story is kind of lame, but it's a kids movie. Really everything in this film is just... OK. It's not a terrible film, but there's nothing that really makes it stand out either. The one thing I kind of liked was the story structure and editing style, but that's just about it.
I just think its a kids film that tries a little too hard to be "just for kids." It doesn't really respect the intelligence of the kids watching it, but if the kids aren't picky anyway, it's not really a problem.
I wouldn't really recommend it, but there's nothing wrong with it. If you just want to take your child to a movie, and this is the only thing playing, I'd say go for it. But its not something you absolutely have to see.
5/10 - Generic kids film, but it's not terrible.
